Unlock your potential and finally move forward. A recent study showed that when doctors tell heart patients they will die if they don't change their habits, only one in seven will be able to follow through successfully. Desire and motivation aren't enough: even when it's literally a matter of life or death, the ability to change remains maddeningly elusive. Given that the status quo is so potent, how can we change ourselves and our organizations? In Immunity to Change, authors Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey show how our individual beliefs--along with the collective mind-sets in our organizations--combine to create a natural but powerful immunity to change. By revealing how this mechanism holds us back, Kegan and Lahey give us the keys to unlock our potential and finally move forward. And by pinpointing and uprooting our own immunities to change, we can bring our organizations forward with us. This persuasive and practical book, filled with hands-on diagnostics and compelling case studies, delivers the tools you need to overcome the forces of inertia and transform your life and your work.

A Radical New Model for Unleashing Your Company’s Potential In most organizations nearly everyone is doing a second job no one is paying them for—namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people’s impressions of them. There may be no greater waste of a company’s resources. The ultimate cost: neither the organization nor its people are able to realize their full potential. What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone—not just select “high potentials”—could overcome their own internal barriers to change and use errors and vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth? Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey (and their collaborators) have found and studied such companies—Deliberately Developmental Organizations. A DDO is organized around the simple but radical conviction that organizations will best prosper when they are more deeply aligned with people’s strongest motive, which is to grow. This means going beyond consigning “people development” to high-potential programs, executive coaching, or once-a-year off-sites. It means fashioning an organizational culture in which support of people’s development is woven into the daily fabric of working life and the company’s regular operations, daily routines, and conversations. An Everyone Culture dives deep into the worlds of three leading companies that embody this breakthrough approach. It reveals the design principles, concrete practices, and underlying science at the heart of DDOs—from their disciplined approach to giving feedback, to how they use meetings, to the distinctive way that managers and leaders define their roles. The authors then show readers how to build this developmental culture in their own organizations. This book demonstrates a whole new way of being at work. It suggests that the culture you create is your strategy—and that the key to success is developing everyone.

GURINDER CHADHA, OBE, director of Bend It Like Beckham 'A crystal-clear roadmap to reverse the roots causes of our poor metabolic and immune health. It is the handbook of health for our time.' MARK HYMAN, New York Times bestselling author of Food Fix ******* The simple, evidence-based diet plan to rapidly improve your metabolic health, help with normal immune function and likely reduce the risk of severe effects from Covid-19. Dr Aseem Malhotra is a leading NHS-trained cardiologist and a pioneer of lifestyle medicine. He has been at the forefront of citing the health conditions which make us vulnerable to the worst effects of Covid-19. Obesity, Type 2 diabetes and heart disease are high among them - and all indicators of poor metabolic health. The good news is that in just 21 days we can prevent, improve and even potentially reverse many of the underlying risk factors that exacerbate how infections, including Covid-19, affect us and improve our ability to recover from them. Giving us the evidence-based science behind the plan, Dr Malhotra shares how simple changes to our diet as well as daily exercise and stress relief can have remarkable results in improving our markers for metabolic health, even helping to put Type 2 diabetes into remission, reduce risk factors for heart disease, decrease weight and enhance vitality. Arguing for the huge benefits to global health of these highly effective lifestyle changes, he shows how just 21 days can help us to start the journey to lead a healthier and longer life.
